    Intriguing poster. Has an authentic 'realities collide' feeling to it. I feel your pain on the logline stinkage. Harder to write those than a dang script.

    Looking forward to the read.

    Some writers like to lay down the logline right up front. I just can't do that. Feels like it sets up boundaries - course one can always change it as the story unfolds.

    I try to start with a logline but it didn't happen this time. I keep changing my story too. Really glad we have a couple more weeks!

    My MacGuffin is the same though. Wow...I've really exposed my MacGuffin in the poster...I've over exposed my MacGuffin!!!!

    Well I'm getting desperate. I wonder if a logline can be the MacGuffin?



    I took a peek at your work, Marnie. Really crisp writing. The resident filmmakers on DVX should be hounding you for material. Can't wait to see what you do with this homage to Alfred.


    I wish I had more time for Movie Poet as well. Chris runs a top-notch show over there. I believe they are holding a logline competition at the the moment. I know a bad one and a good one when I see them, but I sure can't write 'em.

    Reading up on it as we speak.

    I can hear the calendar pages turning.

    Thanks so much Alex. I really appreciate the compliment. I've been starting to wonder if I was ever going to see something I've written come to life. Hopefully 2010 will break the seal.

    And MP is such a great place to learn and improve. Plus with a contest every month it really keeps you on your toes.

    Thanks Jennifer. I did a little in Photoshop CS2 but most of it in a cheap-o program that I love called Photo Explosion. It takes a while to figure out but I use it to create tons of stuff.
